Lot No. 663

Auctioned on Saturday, January 14, 2012

Sold for $ 4,928

The Birmingham Small Arms (BSA) company produced alot more than just motorcycles. Planes, taxis, guns and much more. Of course motorcycles were a huge part of the company's activities and by the 1950's they were producing more than 75,000 bikes. The end of the 1950's saw the introduction of the A7 (500cc) and later the A10 (650cc). Many different types of A models were produced with great names like Super Flash or Road Rocket.
The A models were very simple in look and nothing very extravagant but therir reliability, oil tightness and price was a major reason for them staying popular. The A models became a trademark design of BSA. In 1962 they were replaced by the A50 (500cc) and the A65 (650cc).
The A50 offered is a fine example of an unrestored survivor machine. This very machine was featured motorcycle in the magazine "Classic Motorcycling Legends". An impeccable restoration machine with fine patina and correct in every detail.
